Welcome to Renton Counseling Center


The human experience is a complicated one and most of us, at one time or another have found ourselves overwhelmed by life. When we respond to life's struggles in ways less than successful we may experience depression and anxiety. Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for the relief of these and many other psychological symptoms.

Our mission is to elevate our provider excellence by utilizing feedback informed care and eradicate suicide and raise the mental health of Renton and other surrounding communities through psychotherapy.

Psychotherapy works to help us understand who we are and why we do what we do. Psychotherapy helps us identify the things that interfere with our personal success in our relationships and lives. 

The goal of pscychotherapy is to increase your self-esteem, improve your quality of life, strengthen your self to successfully pursue happiness, achievement, and love.


RCC Clinical Providers

We know how important it is to find the right match when choosing a therapist for yourself or a family member.  Our therapists strive to connect with patients and the community of Renton. We think that in person experience is still the best but understand the value of virtual convenience.  Select from below to find out more about them and see if they will be a good connection for you. Then click on the book an appointment link to self-schedule.  We are limiting our new intakes to patients residing in Renton or surrounding areas (5mi radius) for in person and virtual appointments. 

We have two types of providers, fully licensed masters level counselors and partially licensed associate license providers. Associate licensed providers are under supervision working on their full licensure and have less working experience. Partially licensed providers called associates and they bill insurance under supervisor license, Vera Dragonchuk.
